    Can anyone recommend a good weather app, that will actually change locations instead of me having to input each city, when i get there? Thanks for any help.:p

    I like Dark Sky. Premium features are $2.99/year. It's hyper local to your location. I've had it give me weather for the block I'm on sometimes instead of the entire town.

    It even gives a notification when rain, snow, etc are starting & stopping in your area.

    It's got a pretty simple UI, but I like it. Gives me the info I need without extra flash.

    I used the Weather Channel for a long time before giving Dark Sky a try. It didn't do a bad job, but had more than I needed.

    Did you open the app, or go right for the widget?

    I opened it, but i haven't started the free trial. Is that why the widgets doesn't put the city name on?:confused:

    That might be. I'm not 100% sure what the premium features are, but you might want to start the trial.

    Does the app show your location?

    What's the widget showing?

    Ah. Sorry. I just tried it & mine doesn't say the location name either. I just take for granted that the app is tracking me when I use it, but I actually just leave the weather card up in the Google Now Launcher.

    I guess I misunderstood that you were looking for a widget that says your location name.

    Have you tried the Google Now widget?

    I also used to use Beautiful Widgets, for years. Weather & clock widgets. Tons of themes.

    Lots of choices. I pay the $2a year for premium that I think only removes ads. You might try it the freebie and see if the widgets are a part of it? Refresh rates are changeable as well,1 hour being the shortest interval based on current GPS location.
    How that helps.
